    Oil Filters

    An engine’s oil filter is an important component that keeps your oil (and engine) clean of contaminants. The first oil filter was designed in 1923 to help alleviate the need for frequent changes from dirty oil. Today’s oil filters have advanced in effectiveness, but vehicles still need a new oil filter each oil change.

    An engine oil filter helps clean the oil. It also keeps some oil in reserve after the engine shuts off. When turned back on the oil remaining in the filter lubricates the engine while the rest flows up from the oil pan.

    FAQs Concerning Oil Filters

    How do I choose the right oil filter?
    While the engine will have only one type of oil filter, you may have a choice between brands or models that will also fit your vehicle. When choosing an oil filter, go for whichever matches your driving style. Eco models may be for efficiency in stop-and-go traffic while performance models will be for vehicles driven with enthusiasm. Though, any oil filter that fits will work.

    Are there other filters in the car other than an oil filter?
    Yes! The engine uses several, including the oil filter, the air filter and a fuel filter. Each of these serves an important function: cleaning contaminants out of the mixture, be it oil, air or fuel. To ensure you get the right one, add your vehicle online to use the oil filter lookup tool or head into your nearest Advance Auto Parts store to talk with a knowledgeable sales representative.

    When should I change my oil filter?
    Many manufacturers give vehicle oil change schedules in the Owner's Manual; oil manufacturers themselves also give timelines for changing the oil. The schedule may depend on what kind of oil you’re putting through the engine, but the average is around 3,000 miles or 3 months. Whenever you change the oil, change the oil filter to ensure that no old pollutants get into the new oil and ruin the engine.


    Signs you Need a New Oil Filter

    • It’s time for regular scheduled oil change
    • Your oil looks unclean
    • Your engine sounds like grinding metal
    • Engine performance suffers

    Oil Filter Types

    There are several types of oil filters that modern vehicles use. Check your Owners Manual or the Advance Auto Parts website to see which oil filter your vehicle needs.

    • Mechanical Oil Filters retain contaminants and separate them from the oil. These oil filters need changing.
    • A Centrifugal Oil Filter uses the force of spinning motion to separate the oil and the contaminants. These oil filters need changing too.
    • Magnetic Oil Filters use an electromagnetic charge to separate the oil from the contaminants. These oil filters are cleaned, not changed.

    How to Install an Oil Filter

    1. Drain old oil and replace drain plug
    2. Remove old oil filter; you may need an oil filter wrench
    3. Pour a small amount of new oil into the new filter
    4. Wipe a bit around the oil filter gasket
    5. Install new oil filter

    Additional FAQs

    Will the vehicle have to be jacked up to change the oil filter?
